Question about Sony VAIO VGN-UX280P Notebook

1 Answer

The battery is not recognized

I'm tackling this problem again after months of just letting it sit. There is
a problem with battery recognition. I can't unplug the computer, that just
turns it off. Checking power options shows there is no battery installed
even though there is. If you have a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.

There probably is a short circuit inside the battery pack or it might be fault in your laptop.
You can try cleaning the battery terminals but there's not much you can do.
The best thing to do is send it back to your retailer or SONY to get warranty if within 1 year or pay to get it fixed.

New batteries in, turn on and Polaroid comes on and then goes to black screen and off.


Not all batteries are created equal, especially in digital cameras. Try lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality NiMH rechargable batteries. Regular alkalines, especially some of the cheaper ones, are not recommended regardless of what the manual says.

Can't start 2001 volvo S60 after sitting for 18 months


Not an expert on this, but I would change the oil and oil filter and you might want to check all belts/hoses under the hood for cracking and replace as necessary. It's likely you'll have to do that after a car sitting idle so long. Don't know if spark plugs should be replaced after not firing for that long, but maybe you want to take a look at those as well.

SANSA E250 IS NOT RECOGNISED


There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Hold in play/pause, and then connect to PC

I don't completely understand the "Firweire" reference. The manual (and logic) does not indicate that a firewire connection would work. Plain old USB for this device.
